Must Be Providence

Providence on Melrose is my new special-occasion favorite. (Although it's on Melrose it's actually pretty far down from THE Melrose that most people think of).

Go there (when you have the dough) and get the tasting menu! The tasting menu is the way to go!!

I originally went there because it was said they had the best dessert in town. (They have a DESSERT TASTING MENU, for like 30$ I believe)

I took my mom there when she was in town. Got the smallest tasting menu they had which was $80.

Anyway, I'll let the pictures speak for themselves :)

It was sooo sooo tasty ....

The scallop was big, fresh and juicy. I also loved the preparation and presentation.

The veal was tender and cooked just right - medium rare.

The pastry chef is undoubtedly innovative and just really awesome :)
I think the only down side is that sometimes it seemed like the dessert was not coordinated perfectly with the rest of the menu.
I say that because the dessert this time was rather rich and heavy when we were already stuffed ... I wanted something more refreshing, perhaps ..

I'm not sure if the tasting menu is the way to go. I ordered a la carte on my last visit a week ago and was much happier!
